IV batting average#biased guesstimate; no obsession

Disclaimer… These numbers are seriously unscientific and heavily biased. It is based due to the sample. I probably excluded many cases.

Out of a hypothetical 720 positions applied,

across java #few HFT across c++ non-HFT HFT
No. shortlisted based on CV 1/3 to 1/2 like 240 1/3 – 1/4 like 180 1/3 [1] like 180
No. passing initial screening 2/3 like 160 2/3 i.e. 120 1/3 like 60
No. technical win 1/2 like 80 1/2 i.e. 60 20%[2] i.e. 12
No. offers 1/2
